    Planes, Trains, & Accessible Travel With SMA

    Talk to your doctor to determine if you or your child is fit to travel.

    Traveling with a child is never easy. Traveling with a child in a wheelchair is an extra challenge. The first time Leah flew on an airplane, she was six months old, almost a year before she was diagnosed. We have always been a traveling family and once she was diagnosed, we were both hopeful and determined that it wouldn’t hold us back.

    I have always flown with Leah by myself, just the two of us. Call me crazy; it’s OK, I am. There are some things we have learned that have made it so much easier for us.

      Some of you use a wheelchair tray, however I’ve found they inhibit my movement too much. I would still like to come up with a solution to get my iPad from point A to point B without dropping it. My goal is to be able to bring it outside to my patio table and get it back in myself. Suggestions?

      I use a cover that folds and placed a loop made of string in the hinge, and then I use the string to drag the tablet from one surface (surface to lap, orient the tablet to pickup, etc.) to another. Not perfect.

        Ah ha, I get your concept. Might not work to get it outside, I have to go down a slight ramp, but it would certainly work to go from one table to another.
